Pride and prejudice variation

To review

A quarantine book during these times, very fitting.

Smallpox is ravaging England, and everyone we know ends up at Longbourne. And there are actually some smart people in the village so Bingley and Darcy are quarantined for 2 weeks.

Which gives us time for Bingley and Jane to patch things up. For Darcy and Lizzy to fall in love. For Caroline to find her heart. And the author does gives us happy ending for everyone in the epilogue, and I did like that.

Nice little novella.

Good narration.

Refugees flood the roads. A feared specter has escaped London’s grimy docklands and now threatens the wealthy districts. Amongst that ragged stream is a single carriage jostling its way toward Meryton. Inside are the Darcy siblings along with Charles and Caroline Bingley. They desperately seek the safety of Netherfield Park. For all their riches, they could not evade the epidemic’s dark hand. Bingley’s leasehold had been reduced to rubble as roving bands raped, pillaged, and burned. The only sanctuary was Longbourn where, once installed, the Darcys and Bingleys were barred from leaving by a fortnight’s quarantine.

Events converge with disease in The Longbourn Quarantine. Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy abandon old prejudices to face grief and mourning. Pride is set aside as Death hovers nearby. The couple forges ahead. knowing that love unexplored is love lost: that words must be said lest they remain unspoken in the time of smallpox.
